1. Lemon Chicken

“I love lemon chicken, a star hawker/local poultry dish in Singapore and Malaysia. Put it simply, it is just a big piece of deep fried chicken meat served with lemon sauce. People from most age groups would love this dish because it had a slightly crispy outside and the meats were very tender inside. The slightly sweet and tangy sauce goes well with the richness of the flavoured  fried chicken. I was so shocked to find that this star dish is even easier to prepare then the Panda Chicken…” -Kenneth Goh
